Board of Education."
Senior White House advisor David Axelrod was on Meet the Press today, where defended Obama's criticism of the recent Supreme Court decision on campaign finance at the State of the Union.

Fox News president Roger Ailes was on ABC's This Week today, where he was confronted by Arianna Huffington about the inflammatory rhetoric that Glenn Beck uses on his show. Ailes replied, "He's talking about Hitler and Stalin slaughtering people so I think he was probably accurate."
Yesterday, without his trusty TelePrompTer, President Barack Obama walked in to the GOP dragon’s den, made his plea and statement to the Republican Party, and then basically said "bring it on", I'm ready for you! It was masterful. Republican House leaders were schooled by a wise and powerful leader.
On his Fox News program yesterday Glenn Beck was asking his panel for one book that is a must read. The Federalist Papers were suggested. Beck said, "The one that makes your head hurt. We need really smart people who can take The Federalist Papers and rewrite them for the common man." Teabaggers are so stupid because reading is hard.
President Obama took up the House Republican leadership's invitation to speak at their annual retreat yesterday where he deftly batted away every GOP talking point and made the Republicans wish that they have never allowed cameras to film the gathering. Obama called out the Republicans for being all tactics with no problem solving.

On MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show, host Rachel Maddow traced President Barack Obama's efforts towards political unity. She examined all of Obama's failed bi-partisan efforts, and concluded that Obama is going to have change his strategy because he is going to get zero Republican support.
On his pre-SOTU Countdown tonight, host Keith Olbermann urged President Obama to seize the hatred of his enemies on the right. Olbermann said Obama should follow the template of FDR and, "welcome their hatred." Olbermann is becoming very Darth Vaderish.
The most surprising reaction to President Obama's State of the Union Speech came from MSNBC's Chris Matthews who said, "I forgot that he was black tonight for an hour." In other breaking news, President Lincoln has freed the slaves.
Democrats are sick of being kicked around and they want to see their Dem leaders KICK some ass. Right now, Liberals want to lock the Conservatives in a room with Al Franken and Alan Grayson and watch the fall out on CSPAN, cheering our guts out as they finally get what’s coming to them.
When Democrats can’t get the obstructionists to play and we fail to read up on how our government works (so we can blame you for not closing Gitmo yet, just say), progressives point our fingers at you with ignorant righteousness, Mr. President, and say, you suck.
While on his Bold and Fresh Tour with Glenn Beck in Waterbery, NY over the weekend, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly claimed that he told Obama to hire him as his special advisor, and as Obama's special advisor he would tell the CIA to kidnap Harry Reid and to waterboard Nancy Pelosi.
On his radio show today, Glenn Beck took his tactics to a whole new level when he announced that he has declared war on the progressive movement. Beck said, "We're declaring war, and not on Obama, but on the progressive movement." Beck, much like al-Qaeda, has now declared war on American citizens.
What could old Andre have said to so inflame? Oh, he just compared people needing government assistant to stray animals. Isn’t that what all Christians do? You can’t doubt this guy’s Jesus cred; he’s the one who brought the “I believe” license plates to South Carolina. The ones with the big crosses on them.
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) was on MSNBC's Hardball tonight to talk about his plan for passing healthcare, but host Chris Matthews kept attacking Grayson and claiming that a sitting member of the House of Representatives does not understand the "real world" of Congress.

On The Daily Show last night host Jon Stewart took CNBC's Jim Cramer to task again for predicting Scott Brown's Massachusetts Senate victory would rally the stock market, only to see the Dow post massive drops in the last two days.
Tonight on his MSNBC show Countdown, host Keith Olbermann did something really odd. He started a feud with The Dallas Morning News, because an editor there posted a blog that compared Olbermann to Glenn Beck and criticized his coverage of the special election. Olbermann fired back with a quick comment tonight.
